Friday on "The Talk" Aldris Hodge opens up about why he wanted to play NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown in his latest film "One Night in Miami." "The two primary things, the message, because Kemp [Powers] wrote, I mean, a mountain of script, and the opportunity to work with Regina King in this capacity, I mean, it is Regina King." Hodge adds, "The message is just so right now, so where it needs to be...it's a privilege to be able to be a part of the vessel that delivers that message." He adds, "What I was most inspired by when I started studying him, which was his mentality, his business IQ. He was really, I would think, like an economic savant, at his time, at his age, at the peak of his success to understand that there's still more. And I need to also take what I know and what I've accomplished and educate my community with the value of economics and understanding how to get in front of their own, and take charge of that, because that's what he did...the man was brilliant."
